The staff could not even smile or say hello, had to walk to the other end if motel to smoke while the staff could smoke anywhere they liked, parking was ridiculous, way to compact, I would never stay there again

Really nice budget hotel in great location. My third floor room offered a great view of the morning fog in the Adirondacks, the bikers in the day, and the activity at night. Friendly staff and great location make this highly recommended. Lake George is a great place with an abundent number of activities easily accessible by walking or trolley ride.

Close to restaurants and the "strip", our family of 4 spent 3 nights at the Econo Lodge at Lake George. The name says it all - the price was within our budget and my expectations were not that high, although I was heartened by the positive comments of previous occupants. I found the breakfast to be surprisingly good : waffles,... More

We just stayed here last week and had a wonderful experience. Thank you for the friendliness in the staff and the cleanliness of the hotel. The rooms were big and comfy. The pool was nice. We enjoyed the free continental breakfast each morning-you don't get that in many of the other hotels. The price was reasonable as well. We hope... More

Great location. Nancy at the front desk is superb. Very well maintained. Good breakfast. Watched the fireworks on Thursday from the balcony. Would love to go back there again. So many restaurants nearby to choose from.

This is a nice hotel at a reasonable price for a resort location. The grounds and outside decks are very well maintained. The rooms are large and housekeeping does a great job. It's about a mile to the north edge of downtown with it's many restaurants, shops and public lake access and activities. This is the second time we've stayed... More

I had a chance to escape for 2 days this past week and head to Lake George. I stayed again this year at the Econo Lodge Downtown, due to the location and price. It was easy to get to the Lake from there, and enjoyed walking around downtown. They say Rachael Ray is from this area, nice. The room was... More

Our trip started with an error in the reservation on the part of the hotel. They quickly resolved the error by upgrading our room (at no charge to us) which exceeded our expectations. We stayed for 3 nights and we had not complaints about our room. All the staff were professional and pleasant. I want to especially thank Christina who... More

Please take my advise and don't stay here. While on a mini vacation with my family, my niece discovered something in the bed that turned out to be blood. This blood was all the way down to the mattress itself. I was horrified and disgusted. This was found after sleeping in the bed for an entire night. When I confronted... More

We thank you for your review regarding your recent stay. We follow a strict housekeeping policy which mandates that all bed linens be stripped and washed upon checkout of the previous room guest(s). Our housekeepers would never put sheets in the condition described in this review back on the bed for the next guest. Patricia Moore General Manager More

Second time we've stayed here in the past few years. This time we spent three nights. The price was reasonable, especially given that we booked the room on rather short notice.
